Embrace The Cross

Do not be afraid Proclaim your faith and love He will provide and without him You can do nothing and will fall away ~ Kyrie e-le-i-son, Kyrie, e-le-i-son ~ ~ Christe, e-le-i-son, Christe, e-le-i-son~ Find the fullness of faith See the Mass with new eyes Understand the Lord's prayer Cultivate virtue, happiness and peace I was envious of prosperity But pride holds them in chains Greed covers them like a garment They care little for the poor and oppressed I have cleansed my heart Found the sanctuary of God I have washed my hands in innocence Have been lifted from desolation and awakened ~ Kyrie, e-le-i-son, Kyrie, e-le-i-son ~ ~ Christe, e-le-i-son, Christe, e-le-i-son ~ Yes, I have awakened As if from a very long dream When my flesh and my heart fails My God will be there to take my hand Kyrie, e-le-ison, Kyrie, e-le-i-son Christe, e-le-i-son, Christie, e-le-i-son Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy Christ, have mercy, Christ, have mercy Taken from the Roman Catholic Hymn, Kyrie Sung at most Catholic Masses Written for the contest, Bi-lingual Poetry Sponsored by Debbie Guzzi
